As an indispensable part of the building, the design of air conditioning system has attracted many people’s attention. Smoke manage system is one of the most important parts of air conditioning and ventilation system, which directly relates to people’s safety. In the previous studies, the loop network was seldom used in the research and application of air conditioning design, especially in the mechanical smoke evacuation system. In this paper, the concept of circular arrangement of pipe is put forward, which is used to discharge the smoke. The advantages of circular arrangement of smoke exhaust system are shown by the case analysis. This study can provide the references to the research and design of ringed arrangement in the field of air conditioning and ventilation system in the future.
